you have done without stating what you have done. as far as laws are concerns or whatever you call it, that's what i'm going to study and get the word and get back to san francisco and tell them, hey, remember i was here 2008, we haven't got no respect from the old redevelopment agency, case and point. look at what happened. black businesses have failed and you spent hundreds of millions of dollars to preserve for what they've done to us in the past, but it didn't work so those were failed efforts so what do you do about your failed efforts? something has to be done and you can go in history and i like the commission asked questions -- when you asked those questions all of them start going around because they didn't expect those questions to be asked. ladies and gentlemen i'm here to say, everything that you said for the delusion, all those facts and figures when you come to the next meeting, we're going to show you that those things that governor brown doesn't know what's going on but he will. >> thank you. do we have any speaker cards. >> i have no further request. >> thank you v
is that pledge only counted until the health care law was signed in march of 2010 only for policies that were in effect before then. any way, these policies are lousy. >> there's two things. there was no extenuating circumstances when you said you can keep your plan. he didn't add a clause. in fact, he said clearly you can keep your plan. he said it once. he said it a thousand times. this wasn't a minor pledge. it was central to passing the law. it is sort of like the first president bush saying no new taxes. he broke that pledge. at least he had the honesty to tell everybody he was breaking the pledge. the president pledged this and never admitted he was going to break it. there's millions of people going to lose it, at least 15 million, including people in the small business community. many small business people are going to lose their plans too. >> we're going to get to that. dr. emanuel, the "wall street journal" reported this weekend that you in fact were part of a debate inside the white house at the time about whether or not this claim you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor w

circuit court of appeals reinstated a ruling forcing abortion clinics to close. now, it is the same law that now texas gubernatorial candidate wendy davis filibustered this year. the author of the decision, appointee of president george w. bush. and then yesterday the d.c. circuit took aim at obama care and found private employers can refuse to provide health plans that give access to birth control under the affordable care act. the authority of that decision, justice rogers-brown. another bush w. appointee. judge brown, if employers oppose birth control on religious grounds, what about viagra? but i digress. brown and owen are not just any appointees but both put on the bench in 2005 after only a two-year democratic delay of their nominations. republicans threatened the use the nuclear option to vote them through with a simple majority. that led to something that we rarely hear about, a deal. seven democrats, seven republicans. the gang of 14. they came together and decided from then on judicial nominees would only be filibustered under extraordinary circumstances. ideology not being o
administration has now delayed six weeks the enrollment. do you like that? >> this is a law that the president continues to figure isn't the law. he continues to make changes. this is the about 14th time he has made some change in the law i support legislation to actually give every american an opportunity to delay it for a year. i think we ought to remove this individual mandate permanently. >> i think it was senator mike lee who had a conversation with us. he said the law has been quote amend ad so many times whether people get exemptions or postponements or waivers that there have been some changes in the law that it's not the law that was passed by congress whether you like it or not. do you feel the same way he does about that. >> i do feel that way. we ought to legislatively. i'm a doctor, i want to make sure that americans get affordable care without all these regulations, mandates, taxes and there are ways that we can do it. what we are seeing with this healthcare law and so much attention is to the web site. the web site is really just the tip of the iceberg, there are big problems co
care law's botched rollout is expected to face harsh questioning today. >> lawmakers are expected to grill secretary kathleen sebelius, as the president's past comments come back to haunt him. abc's tahman bradley is live in washington this morning. good morning, tahman. >> reporter: good morning, john and diana. the obama administration is apologizing for the botched obama care rollout. and today, the person in charge takes the hot seat. today, the woman who manages obama care, health and human services secretary, kathleen sebelius, faces congress. she will blame the failures of the healthcare.gov website on the contractors who built it. but documents show that the main contractor warned the government about issues with the site before it went live, raising questions about whether the administration should have delayed the launch of the health care marketplace. admitting healthcare.gov has not performed properly, the obama administration apologized to the public. >> i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. >> reporter: republicans say probl
dissolution law, i wanted to go over the highlights. so we know at this point in the 20th month of dissolution, that enforceable obligations are the key to what is the agenda for successor agencies. we know that the dissolution law, although it requires successor agencies to wind down as quickly as possible allows activities to continue if they further preexisting enforceable obligations. we also know that in designing enforceable obligations and what can be spent for those, the state through the department of finance has primarily through the rock which you review every six months and submitted to the department of finance. under dissolution law dof has suggest discretion to reject the expenditures in the rock and challenge the existence of the obligations. enforceable obligations are broadly defined to design contract agreements and among other things obligations imposed by state law. so because of the relative uncertainty that we have about enforceable obligation because dof can review them, there was a procedure placed in the clean up legislation to the original dissolu
care law, and you know it's considered a post decision condition. i don't know where to go with this. >> it is a post existing condition. >> it's funny. we keep talking about should we -- somebody's head has got to roll. heads rolling everywhere. if you fire somebody, obama is going to replace him or her with somebody worse. he's a bug lamp for bozos. americans have to do the firing. republicans are not off the hook. to sit here and talk about this is terrible and bad, where the hell are your candidate, alternatives, path to winning elections. you can't sit there and go that person should be fired. that's where you start not where you end. >> you're saying you can't just be against the other guy. come up with something to motivate people to move in your direction? >> come up with candidates that aren't chumps. >> that's frustrating for me. i saw someone on my own net work last night suggest to a congressman, why didn't you warn us if you knew it would be bad? they had been trying for a long time. no one would pay attention until there was a disaster. several members of congress tried
president obama signed the affordable care act into law have been turbulent, period marked by relentless and unanimous resistance from the opposition to establish law, consider this. president franklin roosevelt rolled out a series of programs he designed to combat the great depression, programs to build things, grow things, establish union rights and retirement programs for some federal workers. when fdr established the new deal, he, too, was met with fierce opposition. not just from members of the other party, but from the courts. during roosevelt's first term as president, the supreme court declared parts of his program unconstitutional. naturally that did not sit well with fdr so he sent congress a bill that would give the president the authority to appoint one new supreme court justice for every sitting justice over the age of 70. since there were six justices over 70 years old back then, that would mean six new justices. presumably all of them democrats. fdr lost the new deal rulings 6-3, but on a 15-member court with six new democrats, six new fdr appointees, he probably would hav
scrutiny, as white house officials admit some plans will cease to exist under the law. >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some that can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that's substandard. what is also true is americans who have insurance on the existing individual market will now have numerous options available to them. >> reporter: president obama making an obama care pitch to young people. you must sign up for health insurance to avoid a fine. >> when you look at the number of young people who actually want health insurance but are having trouble affording it, the fact we're making it affordable for them for the first time, that's a big deal. >> reporter: a new study shows 70% of eligible americans between 18 and 34 can now purchase coverage for less than $100 per month. that's if they can sign up. health care.gov was knocked offline sunday, along with the data hub that verifies eligibility for government subsidies.
intelligence was not running amuck. >> our current programs are bound by the rule of law and they are focused on threats to our security, not the communications of ordinary persons. >> what the president said in our interview that the leaks by edward snowden have done is make the united states rethink how we spy on our allies and how the nsa is controlled. >> should we assume from that answer, sir, that you did or would know if actually that was happening? >> jim, as i said, i'm not here to talk about classified information. what i am confirming is the fact that we're undergoing a complete review of how intelligence -- there are very strict laws governing what we do internally. >> right. >> internationally, there are less constraints on how our intelligence teams operates. what i have said is that it's important for us to insure as technology develops and expands, that are reflective of our values. >> questions also emerge this past week about how much the president knew about the troubled website that was america's porthole to obama care. the website that came online and then offline. >> thi
bench. she has the support of the national women's law center, the women's bar association and the national congress of american indians. ms. millett is well-qualified and we should confirm her now. one justification -- and i don't think it is a good one -- but the only justification i've heard is not about her at all, madam president. it's about the d.c. circuit, some of my colleagues think that they should remain with three openings on their bench. i don't think this argument squares with the facts. currently three of the 11 seats on the d.c. circuit are empty, and according to the administrative office of the courts, seniors judges, judges who are partially retired, are now involved in over 40% of the cases that are decided on the merits. before he was our supreme court justice, john roberts was confirmed to sit on the d.c. circuit. ten years ago, when chief justice roberts was confirmed to sit on that circuit, the average judge on that court had only 125 pending cases. today, with three vacancies on the court, that number is 185 cases. those are the complex cases that a
for affordable health insurance. >> the governors and state legislators that embraced this law are delivering for their communities. but those elected who are trying to ignore the opportunities presented and continue to throw up roadblocks both here in congress and in state legislators should not now seem surprised that there are significant bumps along the way. this seems to be completely disingenuous. >> reporter: in today's testimony, secretary sebelius didn't address calls by some republicans that she resign. she promised again the website will be fixed by november 30. and she took on the criticism insurance companies are canceling thousands of existing policies despite the president's pledge individuals could keep their plans if they wanted to. in other words, they'd be grandfathered in. >> we outlined the grandfather policy so people could keep their own plans. we then began to implement the other features of the affordable care act. so if someone is buying a brand new policy in the individual market today or last week, they will have consumer protections for the first time. but if, aga
out attacks on the united states, then our federal law enforcement agents should have been working with the authorities of pakistan to arrest him. >> and one really has to ask the question why the government was not able to arrest or even question him. this is islamabad we're talking about. it's the capital of the country. >> population is over a million people. jirga was a real public event. >> it was at a big hotel. it was advertised widely. it was an open event. >> tariq aziz was plainly visible to hundreds and hundreds of people. he talked with reporters. everything about him that the authorities could have wanted to know about his location and about his recent activities were known to the united states. >> it would have been extremely easy for them to approach him, sit down and talk to him or, for that matter, put him in jail. but instead the cia chose to go and kill him without giving him the opportunity to give his side of whatever it is that they thought that he had done. there is no evidence there whatsoever. and they've given him no lawyers, there's no judge and there's n
fixing obama care, making sure the law works, has to be top priority and with today's announcement that some big tech companies are contributing experts to help fix healthcare.gov, it's pretty clear the administration knows that. wolf? >> the news is not good over at the white house. let's move on. the health care law says that members of congress and congressional staff have to go into these new obama care insurance exchanges but some lawmakers are planning to exploit a loophole in the law. our capitol hill reporter is working this part of the story, lisa desjardens. >> reporter: you probably remember in 2010 when congress froze the affordable care act, they decided that members of congress and their staff should personally feel the ups and downs of the obama care exchange. they wrote that into the law. fast forward to now, and members will still be required to go into those exchanges, our elected members of congress, but because of the way the law was written, vaguely, it's not as clear for staff. there's a very messy debate over that. really quickly, here's why. when the law was
the paramedics say. we are in law enforcement but if the medics are saying we need to getten to the hop, i go with what they say. >> the attorney says it is a misunderstanding and the owner is ill. the company owns two other facilities operating licenses that were revoked in those facilities. >> a park worker accused of running over a sunbather will be in court after pleading not guilty to felony vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run accident. he is accused of killing a 35-year-old in a city vehicle sunbathing with her 11-month-old child and dog when she was hit. the defense attorney says he swerved to avoid hitting a dog. aa subcommittee will talk about ways to improve safety communications between pg&e and city officials. the move is after a pipeline was shut down in san carlos this month. the officials first learned from the media that flawed documents were used to declare the pipe line safe. the line was shut down but now is reconnected to flow at a much lower pressure level. an armed robbery suspect shot by san francisco police is in serious condition after officers cornered him

that the shooter is being described in. it's likely a coincidence but something that law enforcement has to consider in their investigation. >> of course law enforcement will consider everything. there was a dry ice incident, dry ice bomb incident at lax. but as the eyewitness told us, the shooter, alleged gunman walked up to him and asked if he was tsa, which suggests at some loefl this person was perhaps looking for tsa and wanting to do something to them. doesn't that say that to you? >> it really does. the person is described -- we're hearing white male and he was dressed all in black, maybe some type of combat type of black clothing. he had the rifle. it's obvious to everyone that this guy came in and had a game plan. he had a weapon and it appears that he had a target group he was going after. he initially shot csa officers, agents, he even asked this guy in civilian clothes who was hiding behind the chair, are you tsa? that was what his apparent thought process was. i'm here to interact or to assault tsa. the question now for the fbi, which will be the lead agency in this investig

, for instance, have to get yeah or nay from the senate foreign relations committee. it's a quirk in the law. not the whole senate but the foreign relations committee. the senators, the two leading senators, chairman robert mendez-- a democrat-- and bob corker of tennessee-- the republican-- and many others, senator mccain who you saw interviewed this week, all believe that maliki's exacerbating his problems but alienating the sunnis. they do things like go into sunni neighborhoods and round up 500 young men in the name of fighting terrorism and one american official told them "you're making the same mistakes we made in iraq early on, we create more terrorists." they're concerned about allowing iranian overflights of material and weapons to assad's forces in syria and finally they are very concerned that any counterterrorism or weapons they give, maliki could use to repress his own people because they have cracked down on a lot of protesters. so the white house -- let me just say briefly-- sees all that but they are most concerned about this absolutely volatile situation along that border be

that they spent as corporate lawyers working for this very important law firm, sullivan and cromwell in new york. that was not a law firm that you went to if you needed a contract drawn up or to be represented in court. they had a specialty. that was pressuring small weak countries to accept the demands of big american corporations. that is what allen dulles and foster dulles devoted their lives to doing. in their own minds, the interest of the united states and the interest of american multinational corporations became the same thing. they came into office, one as secretary of state and the other as director of the cia, with these two influences. this religious view of the world divided between good and evil and many years of working for corporations that shaped to their view of how american foreign policy should work. >> when was john foster dulles secretary of state? >> both of them came to power at the same time. they were sworn in immediately after president eisenhower took office in 1953. it was the only time in american history that siblings had controlled the overt and covert sides of fo
